La Cocina de Luz, Telluride

123 E. Colorado Avenue
Telluride , Colorado
Tel: 970 728 9355's insider take:

Mexican restaurants in ski towns can get away with greasy tacos served with tasteless refried-bean mush. Indeed, there's such a place just across the street from Cocina de Luz. But here—the name translates to "kitchen of light"—organic meats and vegetables are flavored with 12 varieties of chilies and wrapped in handmade tortillas. Try the poblano chile relleno, a roasted chili pepper that's batter-fried and cheese-filled. Bask on Telluride's sunniest patio (there are only three tiny tables inside) and keep an eye out for loyal customer Daryl Hannah.

Open daily 9 am to 9 pm.
